The Muttley Crew

OK, Muttley Crew probably sings too, but they're of the four-legged persuasion. Mimi, Co-Host of The Power Morning Show on KPWW FM radio, Power 95 FM (http://www.power959.com/main.php), is the one woman show at Muttley Crew. On her web site (http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/AR186.html) she writes:

The rescue is operated solely on donations and the income of the main dog-feeder, Mimi. In August of 2006, I left my comfortable 3 bedroom brick home in town and moved to a shack in the country with 5 acres to open a dog rescue. I have probably had somewhere around 300 dogs come through my rescue in the past year and a half. Most of the dogs are rescued from the local animal shelter or intercepted before they get to the shelter. I have a volunteer group that helps with adoption events the first Saturday of every month at Petsmart in Texarkana, Texas. Most dogs have some obedience training and often have received some housetraining. I mainly rescue German Shepherds but often have different mixed breeds too. I also have an email group called The Muttley Email Crew. I email photos and information about dogs and cats (and sometimes horses) that need new homes. The plan is to try and prevent the animals from going to the shelter. You can join that crew by emailing me at mimi@gapbroadcasting.com.

I have applied to Extreme Makeover Home Edition for a RESCUE MAKEOVER! Wish me luck! If you are interested in helping with the nomination, please send an email to me and I will forward details to you: mimi@gapbroadcasting.com.

I like that -- a rescue makeover. Can't you just hear them yelling, "Move that bus!" and seeing all those animals with a new place to live until they find new homes?

Thanks to Mimi and the thousands of other unsung heroes around the country who open their hearts and homes (and wallets) to help animals find new, loving homes. How amazing people can be when given a chance!

People who run animal rescues are a breed apart. They have a special gift that most of us don't have, and are indeed angels on earth. Thank Dog for these special people like Mimi.

Wow, what a great article. Mimi IS truly an angel on earth. I'm sorry I'm just now seeing this. I will be emailing you to get details on nominating you for Extreme Makeovers. Thanks for being "who" you are. You are truly a wonderful person.
